You should be able to feel it when the spring bottoms out. Do not run it with the spring bottomed out and do not attempt to tighten it any farther for any reason. When it bottoms out, back off 1/4...

This is a shortcoming of motorlyzers- no torque measurement. A big kv number wonít always translate to good power output. Must verify with run testing.

We race the 13.5 4wd and itís a lot of fun. Plenty powerful enough, but still driveable so people can actually race each other. Still harder to drive than a 2wd/17.5, imo, but I am still trying to...

Except for Australia, I am not aware of anywhere that runs 17.5 4wd. 4wd buggies are not easier to drive in my experience (I race both classes). Theyíre faster, and they usually steer faster. Setup...

I believe the current B6.1 axles have two dogbone depths to accommodate 65 and 67mm driveshafts. I don't know if there's a dogbone plunge option with that adjustment, though.

Also looks like they went back to the old style input shaft/outdrive design. Hopefully that allows for molded ring & pinion gears. Much lighter and 13.5 has become the more popular dirt 4wd class...

Interesting choice for diff height adjustment. It raises the entire assembly, shock tower, inner hinge pin location. I wonder if they were unable to accomplish it with the spacer layout the B6.1...

Somebody jumped the gun, for sure. Things can change between now and then. Currency shifts can change pricing, so they'll want to wait until just before release to lock that in.

I just tried that and I got exactly one hit. When I attempted to view the page, it said "product not found".

While there's good reason to believe a new car is coming, we do not know when or what.

I'm gearing 28/72, timing 47*, on a medium length, medium-high bite track. No fan, comes off typically @ ~130f. It's been the best motor I've had.

The harsh realities of global trade. In the US, Yokomo is one of the most expensive at $499USD for the YZ4sf. The B64 is one of the cheapest.

Understood. Just bringing it up because the focus on weight distribution can make a meaningful difference in differential weight an additional factor outside of rotating mass.

Making $15k/mo assumes rent, utilities, maintenance and insurance are free. It's more likely they're not making any money and do it because they love to and make their living doing something else.
